Smoked, American Barbecue
We're in Great Falls, Montana for a few days, in residence at the local KOA on the outskirts of town.
Melanie booked a hair cut cutting for today and I'd made arrangements to have the brake pads on my bike replaced yesterday. So, while she was getting coiffed, I made my way over and picked up my bike.
I figured I should find lunch since Melanie had a couple of pieces of fruit while she worked this morning, but, honestly I wasn't feeling too good about the prospects for finding something worth our while.
We had dinner out last evening and, while the food was edible, the restaurant doesn't warrant a mention though it did remind us of one of our go-to restaurants back in Alabama, The Bright Star. The food wasn't nearly as good, but the wood paneled room of longstanding was reminiscent of Bright Star.
I Google "Best Lunch Great Falls" and from my location near Melanie's salon and Smoked, American BBQ came up as as possibility. They mention on their site they have the best ribs in Montana. Okay. Sold.
While we didn't try the ribs, we do highly recommend the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches. The brisket is the best I've had since we were in Mobile and had it at Meat Boss. That's high praise.
They even have a white sauce a al Big Bob Gibsons'. The owner told me he keeps up with those who produce BBQ all over the country. Recommended.
